Ukrainian Playing Cards Deluxe (54) Part 3:
These "Ukrainian Playing Cards Deluxe (54)" are over-sized playing cards when compared to standard poker deck sized cards.
They measure 2.728 inches wide, by 4.350 inches tall; and feel more like a Tarot sized deck.
But that size difference just makes the artwork by Vladislav Erko even more amazing to look at.
If you are interested in owning a deck too, you can find them at:http://www.yevshan.com/main.asp?cid=1093&pid=28730
They are item MC193, and sell for $15.95 (US), plus about $6.00 for shipping.
Compare their prices to the $28.49 plus $15.00 shipping on Ebay, and you'll know why I buy from them.
Yevshan, based in Canada, has given me great service, including letting me pay through Paypal using their email address; and they ship all orders to the U.S. (through New York) each Friday. Once shipped, each package has gotten to me in California by Wednesday of the next week.
If there is enough interest in seeing more cards like those above, I also have the beautiful Ukrainian Taras Bulba, Large Format Playing Cards (Erko) deck from Yevshan, and I'll be posting scans of those images too; but you can get a peek at a couple of the cards at:http://www.yevshan.com/main.asp?cid=1093&pid=27749
These are item MC176, and they are a bit more expensive at $23.95, plus shipping; but well worth it for collectors.
And if there is truly enough interest, I'll also post scans of the beautiful Ukrainian Eneida Playing Cards, item MC171 ($13.95) which can be seen at http://www.yevshan.com/main.asp?cid=1093&pid=27656

That's all for now from California!
